Digital posters allow you to present your research or ideas in a visually attractive way by incorporating text, images, animation, video or audio. They are an effective tool for communicating information in a concise, visual format.

Create conversation! A well designed poster should engage your audience.

Digital Posters - Class Presentation

Digital Project Showcase

Digital Project Showcase

A Digital Project Showcase is held in the Cummings Collaboratory. During a showcase, students use digital screens to share digital posters, presentations or interactive digital designs. Just like a professional conference presentation, posters visually communicate a message and engage audiences by stimulating conversation and discussion.

If you are presenting in the Collaboratory, plan ahead by booking a media table with a digital screen

Check your presentation on the screen to ensure that your poster design is displaying in the appropriate format for the size of the screen. Your poster should be 1280 px wide by 720 px high.
